Japanese biding and a sneak pic – enquadernat japones i una petita ullada

It’s a pretty simple technique once you get the hang of it.
Es una tecnica senzilla un cop li enganxes el truc.
Guess what’s the material for the cover,
Endevineu que es el material de la coberta ,
it’s wall paper!
paper per empaperar parets (visca les aliteracions!)

It makes a pretty little notebook, or sketch book, or journal…
it just took me 5 minutes to do the binding, but first you have to decide how thick 
you want it to be and cut your paperget a soft cover and that’s it!

Queda una llibreta molt maca… l’enquadernat el vaig fer en 5 minuts, 
pero abans has de triar una coberta i decidir el gruix que vols,
tallar el paper i llestos!



I just came from Una’s place a while ago where I started to learn how to do another kind of binding, just like this one, and I want to show you a bit of what I did. I haven’t finished it yet (we like to chat you see) hopefully over the weekend I will, but it’s coming out beautifully!
Fa una estona que he vingut de casa l’Una on estava aprenent a fer l’altre enquadernat, com aquest, i us vull ensenyar una miqueta del que he fet. Encara no esta acabat, espero que aquest cap de setmana el podre acabar (amb tanta xarrera la cosa s’allarga), pero esta quedant precios!

oi que es maca aquesta cinta?
isn’t this ribbon just lovely?






If you are interested in buying any of Una’s handcrafted books you can contact her through the link above. If you live in Ireland (or are planning to visit the country!), why don’t you try and arrange a workshop with her, you’d be done in 3 hours and leave with your own book.


There are some tutorials like this on the internet,  but of course you’d miss the pleasure of meeting Una, walk around the island and have the chance of seeing all her work.


Si esteu interessats en comprar un d’aquest llibrets podeu contactar amb l’Una a traves de l’enllac, que us he deixat mes amunt. Si viviu a Irlanda, o teniu planejat un viatge per aqui, perque no us animeu a fer un taller? en 3 horetes tindrieu el vostre llibre!
o… podeu donar un cop d’ull a aquesta tutorial,  tot i que us perdrieu el plaer de coneixer-la personalment, de caminar per l’illa, i de veure totes les coses que fa!
